Summary

The stunning new story of love and secrets from the number one best-selling author of The Forgotten Village.

Can one promise change the fate of two women decades apart?

Scotland, 1940.

War rages across Europe, but Invermoray House is at peace - until the night of Constance’s 21st birthday, when she’s the only person to see a Spitfire crash into the loch. Rescuing the pilot and vowing to keep him hidden, Constance finds herself torn between duty to her family and keeping a promise that could cost her everything.

2020.

Kate arrives in the Highlands to turn Invermoray into a luxury B&B, only to find that the estate is more troubled than she’d imagined. But when Kate discovers the house has a dark history, with Constance’s name struck from its records, she knows she can’t leave until the mystery is solved....

A sweeping tale of love and secrets, perfect for fans of Kate Morton and Lucinda Riley.
